IT BEGAN IN 2008
Egmont Honey began from humble beginnings. A beehive may seem like an unusual present, but for committed conservationist Toby Annabell, it was perfect. Gifted by his son James back in 2008, this hive sparked a passion for authentic mānuka honey and a thriving family business. Fast forward to today, where James and the now 50+ team export to over 200 countries and territories around the world, proudly supplying global brands with Pure New Zealand Honey.
WHERE DOES THE NAME EGMONT HONEY COME FROM?
We took the name from the area and National Park that surrounds the towering mountain (Maunga) that overlooks the entire region.
Our Logo depicts the mountain called Taranaki in the Māori language. The Māori word tara means "mountain peak", and naki is thought to come from ngaki, meaning "shining", a reference to the snow-clad winter nature of the upper slopes. It was also named Pukehaupapa and Pukeonaki by iwi who lived in the region in ancient times. The Indigenous Māori people of New Zealand have huge respect for this beautiful mountain.
The wild and rugged Taranaki Region is our home and home to our bees, something we are proud to share with the world.
